Crikey - it was even bleaker then than when I was a boy in the 60s. That Morris Oxford MO gets around a bit, it was at Fersfield as well.

I am pleased that the footage has had so many hits in its first 24 hours on line. The Morris is the Six MS model with the overhead cam engine, its owner driver was a Mr. A.T Brook of Ipswich.
